    Casal Quartett
    “the birth of the string quartet I”

    Works from Scarlatti to Haydn

    Die Entstehung der wichtigsten Gattung der Kammermusik ist untrennbar mit Haydn und Boccherini verbunden. Wie ein Lauffeuer verbreitete sich die Faszination des Streichquartetts. Neben seinem verehrten Zeitgenossen Haydn wurde Mozart dessen wichtigster Exponent im 18. Jahrhundert. Aber bereits vor 1750 entwickelten europaweit verschiedene Komponisten die Loslösung der Vierstimmigkeit vom Basso continuo, allen voran die Italiener Scarlatti mit dem frühesten Beispiel eines Streicherwerkes ohne Cembalo und Giovanni B. Sammartini, als Mittler zwischen Barock und Klassik. Die aufregenden Neuerungen Telemanns und der beiden Wiener Komponisten, wären ohne diese Vorbilder nicht denkbar gewesen.

    Comparison of Interpretations
    Goldmund Quartet & Meta4 string quartet
    Oliver Wille moderation

    Oliver Wille, chamber music professor in Hanover and member of the Kuss Quartet, sharpens the ear for how strongly the personality, attitude and composition of an ensemble influences the interpretation of works. Two string quartets explore one and the same movement from the musical world literature and determine their individual readings in exchange with the presenter and the audience.

    Author's reading & talk

    Navid Kermani
    „Morgen ist da. Reden“

    Wie bedankt man sich angemessen für einen Preis, der einem zunächst aberkannt worden ist? Wie erklärt man Amerika kurz nach der Wahl Donald Trumps seine Liebe? Was sagt ein Deutscher mit iranischen Wurzeln über Auschwitz? Welche Worte bleiben am Grab des eigenen Vaters? Und kann ein Kölner objektiv bleiben, wenn er über den 1. FC Köln spricht? Navid Kermani scheut in seinen großen Reden keine Herausforderung und fordert damit auch seine Zuhörer heraus, sich von bekannten Denkmustern zu lösen. In seinem ureigenen Spannungsfeld von klassischer deutscher Literatur, islamischer Mystik, amerikanischer Gegenkultur und europäischem Geist findet Kermani immer neue Gedankenbögen, die auch den Leser bis zur letzten Zeile fesseln. So beseelt spricht gegenwärtig kein zweiter Deutscher zu uns, taktvoll und provokant zugleich, mit Pathos, wo es angemessen ist, und in einem Rhythmus, der fast schon Musik ist.

    Navid Kermani
    „Jeder soll von da, wo er ist, einen Schritt näher kommen – Fragen nach Gott“

    Herausragend, poetisch und kraftvoll über die kleinen Wunder des Lebens

    Navid Kermani liest aus seinem neuen Buch (Erscheinungstermin: Frühjahr 2022)

    „Als er im Krankenhaus lag, sollte ich Opa versprechen, dich den Islam zu lehren, wenn er nicht mehr da ist, unseren Islam, den Islam, mit dem ich aufgewachsen bin.“ So beginnt ein Vater Abend für Abend seiner Tochter zu erzählen – nicht nur von seiner eigenen Religion, sondern von dem, was alle Gläubigen eint, von Gott und dem Tod, von der Liebe und der Unendlichkeit um uns herum. Dieses sehr persönliche Buch ist nicht nur Verzauberung und literarisches Meisterstück, sondern ein wahrer Erkenntnisgewinn, gerade weil Navid Kermani auch ins Dunkle zu schreiben wagt und damit seiner, unserer Ratlosigkeit einen Ausdruck gibt. Und weil seine Sprache, seine Offenheit, sein Wissen aus zwei Kulturen einzigartig sind, so hell und so tief.
